BERLIN.- In seeing is believing (November 15 – March 2, 2020), the Lebanese artist Caline Aoun addresses how the global digital data flow shapes our perception and immediate physical environment, as well as complete social systems. The expansive exhibition with a multitude of new objects and works on paper is Caline Aoun's first institutional solo presentation. Born in Beirut in 1983, the artist was honored by Deutsche Bank as “Artist of the Year”.

The installation Das Totale Tanz Theater (November 15 – January 31, 2020), which returns to Berlin at the end of the Bauhaus year, offers a virtual art and dance experience. Since January 2019, the virtual reality experience has thrilled people all over the world, in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Montreal, Cannes, and London, among other places. Inspired by the stage experiments of Oskar Schlemmer and Walter Gropius, the “total theater” deals with the relationship between man and machine against the background of digitalization and artificial intelligence.

Svenja von Reichenbach, director of the PalaisPopulaire, said at the opening ceremony: “We want to show again and again in the PalaisPopulaire how— apparently—different worlds and themes act in themselves and together. The two exhibitions are special examples of this. In addition, both presentations are highly topical and investigate issues that are of great importance, indeed existential, for our society.”

The exhibitions are accompanied by a comprehensive supporting program with talks, readings, and discussions. In addition, PalaisPopulaire offers its usual formats such as PalaisLectures, Lunch+ (Wednesdays, 1 – 2 pm), Art+Drinks, and the WorkshopPopulaire 67+ series with a focus on themes related to the exhibitions. In the SundayPopulaire series, which takes place every first Sunday of the month from 3 to 5 pm, children aged six or older produce art, music, or literature in creative workshops.
